After the victory, Reid had this to say about ‘Dez: “He’s become one of my best friends honestly. We only started working together this year, and I want to give him as much credit as possible. I could not have gone through as easy as I have done without him on the bag.

“I’m just absolutely delighted and proud that he’s with me the whole way. He doesn’t change whether I make a bogey or birdie, which I think is good for me. His emotions don’t change at all. Just a great dude, and he’s like a brother to me now. I love him to death and he deserves all the credit.

“He’s an unbelievable caddie and I’m very lucky to have him on the bag.”

Following on from the win, the duo featured in a hilarious video on the LPGA Tour Twitter page. Certain questions asked to Reid were what she would do if she weren’t an athlete, with both answering – opening a pub. Reid was also asked what her caddie would be if he weren’t a caddie, with the rapid response being: “(He’d be) a virgin.”
